Today’s highly interesting read (12/05/21): Roe v. Wade Harmed Even Many Children Born After the Court’s Decision

On this Sunday, today’s read is from John Lott, the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center. Here’s an excerpt:

Liberalizing abortion rules ignited vast long-term social changes in America. The 1970s saw major changes, but few realize that research has shown the role that Roe had in help creating them. Nor do people the harm to the children born after Roe as well as many of their mothers. But before we get to those harms, let’s discuss the changes:

  • A sharp increase in pre-marital sex.
  • A sharp rise in out-of-wedlock births.
  • A drop in the number of children placed for adoption.
  • A decline in marriages that occur after the woman is pregnant.

But all these changes meant one thing: more single-parent families. 

There’s more. Read it all here.
